Yep - but that's the job at the router. This one is probably already set
up correctly because the m0n0wall only replaces an old FreeBSD-Box doing
all this before. My problem is that behind the routers there is another
net but m0n0wall has to be the only DHCP-Server:

WAN <--> m0n0wall <--> x.x.1.0/23 <--> router <---> router <-->

The old FreeBSD-Box managed this using isc-dhcpd - the same software
m0n0wall is using.
